Addressing Liability for Institutional Child Abuse (Part One)

Non-Delegable Duty of Care

Identifying a Proper Defendant

Impact on Schools

In light of the legislative reform trend around the nation in relation to institutional liability for child sexual abuse, schools should be aware of the impact of both current and proposed legislation in their state or territory. This is particularly important for those schools that may be aware of current cases of historical child sexual abuse and any current guidelines regarding compensation for child sexual abuse from their governing institutions…….someone ask Runaway Rob Presswell how he can help. should have helped ur kids but pretend he cant see… to help his friend instead.

  1. Jeff Parker luvs sticking his prodder into young Aboriginal boys says:
    • Boundless gunner bullshit says:

      Another welcome source of information the NT Government would not want to be disclosed to voters.

      • cleaning the house says:

        The NT job website has advertised the position of the Deputy Chief Executive at DoE!
        Can it be that Marion Guppy is leaving?
        News from the Katherine Office is that redundancies have been in progress, with the Director of that region Mr Andrew accepting a six figure payout.
        Will Marion also be taking a redundancy, and why has Maree Garrigan moved from position at DoE and returned to her old position as the director of the NT TRB?
        Given Eva Lawler has moved portfolios there could be some house cleaning going on in NT Education!
        Could be some of these peoples decisions and actions are biting out in the electorates!
        If this is the case who is doing the sweeping, is it Baylis or is it Selena or even Mr Gunner?
        Could be some scapegoating taking place.

  2. Brendan says:

    Powerful factions, as part of their intimidation tactics, deliberately try to breed a sense of collective and personal impotence: you’re too small and powerless, and they’re too fortified and entrenched, for you to meaningfully challenge them. But human beings, all of us, have the power to move the world even a little tiny bit at a time. And the more that happens, the more the world moves in the direction it’s pushed.

    We’re trained to think only grandiose, revolutionary overhauls have meaning. But tiny, isolated actions also matter – convincing a single person to change how they think or behave, helping or saving a single life, being an anonymous, unrecognized part of any campaign or movement. It matters on its own because of its inherent worth, and because of its cumulative effect. But so often your actions can reverberate in ways you would never expect. Impotence and hopelessness are a tactic, a lie told by those who wield power, to foster resignation, passivity, and acceptance.

    • Hannah Curran says:

      Excellent piece of writing Brendan have shared it on my support page for whistleblowers whistleblower northern territory. Thank you CFB..there is so much I want to write about my case again on my facebook page WBNT but in 2015 some one got it deleted twice in 2 days and my Instagram wbnt page got deleted also and have recently been told authority will delete it again if I mention anything further about name and school name court suppression order so am wary what I post on wbnt at the moment

    • Factional power brokers at work says:

      Great work NT News.
      Moving the NT educational world significantly by shining your spot light on the NT teacher registration board.
      What a surprise Jarvis Ryan trying to defend the nt trb. What a joke you are Ryan.
      Who wrote that letter for you? Was it Marion or Vicki or did your labor party mates lean on you to take the heat off the new Minister Uibo? Funny how she has gone quiet on bringing the trb to heal! Just another labor politician being leaned on by Gunners mates, Ryan, Lawler and Hayes.

  3. Same Old Same Old says:

    Nt Ed still resorts to the same old tactic of covering for bad behavior by it’s principals.
    How many spin & propaganda stories about Clyde Fenton School will be needed to help the education community forget about Jeff Parker threatening a child with his cattle prodder at Kalkarindji School in 2015?

    Given the number of recent media reports about the Nt teacher registration board and it’s refusal to release it’s findings into teacher disciplinary matters, it would seem this is one matter the Nt trb would also like to keep secret!

    One has to ask is the Nt trb really an independent body?

    Given the Nt govt has ultimate vicarious responsibility for the behaviour of it’s employees, then the Nt dept of Ed would defend allegations against it’s employees in an effort to minimise risk to the govt. Both bodies utilise the services of the Nt solicitor when making findings relating to complaints about teachers.

    The Nt trb is part of the dept of Education and it’s staff are employees of that dept. It seems these staff can and do move freely between positions in all areas of the Ed
    dept. Take the case of Maree Garrigan and her movements between these two organisations. How can a Director of the Nt trb leave her position and take up another position in the Dept of Ed then suddenly return to again be the Director of the trb?

    Did she resign her directors position?
    Did she apply for the new position in the dept of Ed?
    Was it even advertised?
    Are the two positions involved actual gazetted positions?
    Why did she leave the position at Ed?
    Was the trb directors position advertised before Maree again took up this position?

    It looks very much like there is no independence between the Nt trb & the Nt dept of Ed!

    • TRB a Reflection of Rotten Public Service in NT says:

      There is no perception of independence and there is no real independence. The Board Chair Blanchfield has been there too long. So a limit of the tenure of a Board Chair should be in place say 4 years. As for the Director there should also be a limit of 3 years and then an option of another 3 years, so a maximum of 6 years all up. This prevents cliques. But the TRB should be seen to recruit from outside of DoE. Perhaps not having former NT teachers would be a good start. The rotten situation is just another manifestation of the rot in Darwin. No wonder retention rates in NT Government jobs are so poor. Talk about the Mafia! Even worse is the inaction of the education unions, the AEU NT and the IEU Qld & NT.

      Selena Uibo must have a night of the long knives in the TRB.

    • HOW MUCH DID CDU KNOW YEARS AGO??????????????? says:

      With CDU’s record what was actually studied and was this type of behavior happening during teaching practicals? Fiddling with Primary Students CURR2067 and Getting Off with Primary Students CURR3056!!!!!!!!

      • more un-Education Dept lies & bullshit, Hayes is a CUNTsultant says:

        No. 428
        LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF THE NORTHERN TERRITORY WRITTEN QUESTION

        Mr Guyula to the Minister for Education:

        Hilton Hayes Consultancy

        Please advise of the details of the Education contract awarded to Hilton Hayes Consultancy:
        1. What are the terms and objectives of this project?
        2. How do they plan to gather data?
        3. What communities in my electorate will they visit?
        4. Who will be consulted on the ground? Will interpreters be used?
        5. Will Yolŋu community members be employed as part of the project?
        6. How will the information be used by the Department of Education?
        7. Will there be a public report and when will it made available?

        RESPONSE:

        1. The consultant, Mr Hylton Hayes, has advised that he is unable to continue with the contract to complete this project due to unforeseen private family matters.
        The project had been commissioned by the joint school attendance taskforce* to study recent declines in enrolment and attendance in the Arnhem region and was to include analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data across 15 Arnhem schools (12 government and 3 non-government).
        The objectives of this project were to:
        – identify any trends and patterns in the Arnhem schools’ enrolment and attendance data
        – gain community insight behind the recent declines in Arnhem schools
        – provide recommendations to the taskforce to respond to the issues identified as driving the recent declines.
        A copy of the intended Terms of Reference for the project is attached (Attachment A).
        Due to this project being unable to be progressed as had been intended, the taskforce has been undertaking other work to achieve some of the same objectives.
        This has included the establishment of a stakeholder network focused on school engagement to:
        – review system-level and school-level enrolment and attendance data and identify trends
        – provide community insight behind the recent declines in Arnhem schools
        – collectively problem-solve new approaches to school engagement (to be undertaken in five week sprints)
        – review the impact of school-level actions to improve attendance.
        Participants at these forums include community members, school leaders (government and non-government) and representatives from the department, the Commonwealth Government and the Catholic Education Office.
        The department is also currently developing a new terms of reference for the project and a revised scope of requirements will be prepared to reflect current needs and matters outstanding. This will include analysis of the Galiwinku and Maningrida school and community contexts as two deeper case studies. It is anticipated that this project will be a Tier 2 procurement process and normal procurement action will subsequently be undertaken.
        *The joint taskforce is a Northern Territory Government and Commonwealth Government senior officials group which works to identify partnering opportunities to address attendance issues in the Northern Territory through collaborative effort. The group monitors Northern Territory enrolment and attendance data to identify trends of potential concern to enable timely and effective responses.

        2. The scope of the new works is being finalized but it is likely that data analysis will be primarily conducted utilising existing datasets held by the department pertaining to enrolment and attendance, including:
        – Enrolment numbers
        – Attendance rates
        – Reasons for non-attendance
        – Student mobility
        – Retention rates.

        3. The scope of requirements for the revised project is being finalised but will focus on Galiwinku and Maningrida.
        No communities in the Nhulunbuy electorate were visited by the Hylton Hayes Consultancy. The sites in scope for this project had been:
        – Alyangula
        – Alyarmandumanja Umbakumba
        – Angurugu
        – Baniyala Garrangali
        – Gapuwiyak
        – Maningrida
        – Milingimbi
        – Milyakburra
        – Nhulunbuy
        – Numbulwar
        – Ramingining
        – Galiwinku
        – Warruwi
        – Yirrkala.
        The communities now participating in the stakeholder group through the taskforce are as follows:
        – Alyarmandumanja Umbakumba
        – Angurugu
        – Baniyala Garrangali
        – Gapuwiyak
        – Maningrida
        – Milingimbi
        – Milyakburra
        – Galiwinku
        – Wadeye.
        N.B. The stakeholder group targeted schools with an average attendance levels of less than 50%.

        4. For the stakeholder group work, the community members and school leaders participating in the forums are responsible for community engagement. It is considered that through this
        model of engagement that interpreters are not required.

        5. Through the stakeholder group work, no additional staff members have been employed by the department. Participant community members, some of whom are Yolngu people, are committed to leading change in their communities on a voluntary basis. It should be noted that part of the work of the forums is to review whether schools are maximizing resourcing. Ideas generated through the stakeholder group may impact employment at the school level.

        6. The joint taskforce will utilise findings from the school engagement forums and the new project to identify any trends and appropriate responses required at a system level, including areas for inter-government collaboration, to respond to recent declines.

        7. The scope of requirements for the revised project is currently being finalised.

      • Bullshit detective says:

        Will someone explain what this so called taskforce is and what staff/employees/contractors are involved?
        It looks like this taskforce might just be more bullshit and that it doesn’t actually exist!

  4. Another one to watch says:

    • Ball-less Bromance alive and well in NTGOV says:

      HA! Professional Eunuch (got no balls, as a profession). Couldn’t agree more but our floppy dick Minister Michael Gunner openly luvs Craig Allen. For someone who doesn’t support the worker against the NTGOV employer Craig must be perfect for him, no wonder he’s his snuggle bunny.

      Another sickening luv-in: https://education.nt.gov.au/news/2018/new-to-the-helm-at-borroloola-school

      • LAST CHANCE SALOON FOR AEU SHADOW MASTER says:

        Borroloola or bust! Put out of the way in a back water. Last Chance Saloon for Mr P. Hahahaha Labor mates never helped. Maybe Eva acted on advice from Hylton who told Vicki who told Marion who had Mr P shipped out.
        These nostalgic articles are for the swan song act. They had nowhere worse than Borroloola to send him.

        • AEU not worth a cent says:

          AEU is a supine pusillanimous organization of the first degree. As another comment says it has numbered days and will wither away. Class wars are over, the AEU says we cannot upset anyone because the President is more worried about his future than his members.

  5. THE SCREENING AUTHORITY -MAGICAL, MYSTICAL SECRET says:

    A complete failure by the ‘screening authority’. Another of these secret organizations in the NT. SAFE NT my arse!
    see Jenkins v Screening Authority [2016] NTSC 64 for how secret they are, could just be Reece Kershaw in the nude behind a curtain with a party whistle hence the screening part of the name.
    https://www.pfes.nt.gov.au/Police/Community-safety/SAFE-NT.aspx
    That same NT Police who show up to citizen’s doors with the Defamation Act. Reece Kershaw needs to confront these issues. Give someone a gun and uniform and they become a monster.

  6. Enjoy these folks says:




    Interesting videos. People in last two videos always knew something was not quite right. LOL.

    • Rob Presswell, Mr Presswell Where Are You? says:

      Yeh bet they are all telling a new story or have crawled under a rock. Amazing who you find under rocks.

      • GREAT CUNTSULTANT - HOW WOULD YOU LIKE YOUR COVER UP says:

        I wonder why ‘short shanks’ Hayes did not want this guy hung drawn and quartered? Answer: This guy was dodgy and when you are dodgy you are a mate. Our little man only attacks honest people who catch him out. HHC = HYLTON HAYES CAUGHT! The great cuntsultant, capable of fucking up a school in a single bound. Just another southern carpetbagger.

    • Interested says:

      Ok more information needed please.

  7. Selena Uibo is a puppet says:

    NT GOV puppet Selena Uibo steps in to save sewing classes at CSC but does NOTHING about Teacher Registration Board not properly investigating paedophiles, criminals and principals who chase disabled Aboriginal kids AWAY FROM SCHOOL with electric cattle prodders. Or on Laurie Andrew’s smiling HARD ON while hanging around young kids.

    What happened to listening to the community support for the TRB to do their jobs properly and stop letting abusers and criminals run amok in Northern Territory schools? You’re telling us the same idiotic crap that Eva Lawless and Vicki Clueliss feeds us. You only care about scoring cheap political points with this CSC night classes fluff piece, same as your Labor Masters.

    https://www.ntnews.com.au/lifestyle/casuarina-senior-college-classes-saved-with-threeyear-funding-announcement-by-education-minister-selena-uibo/news-story/fd2d6d422af2193140f07b00cecbdb26

    Ms Uibo said it was the community support which led to the continuation of funding for the educational facility.

    “I have heard loudly and clearly that residents of Darwin and surrounding areas value these classes and want them to remain.

    • HE WHO WHINGES LOUDEST GETS ACTION says:

      The bead wearing touchy feelly brigade whinged so much that it could have an effect on certain seats held by LABOR. There is the reality of this. NOT ENOUGH PARENTS COMPLAINING TO THE MINISTER.
      BALLOT BOX PAIN THE ONLY WAY

      • MICKEY MOUSE COURSES WASTE OF MONEY says:

        Mickey Mouse waste of time courses. DoE for once was correct in scrapping them. Minister is an idiot. Perhaps some friend of Eva Lawler was upset that finger painting 1A was going to end.

  8. PARENTS OF THE NT DESERVE BETTER says:

    TRB gets a fail for using low standards to identify teachers seeking registration as does university.
    We have the technology. Simple just have to finger print etc. and then you know who is who. But do you know who else inhabits our schools?
    The vetting process is flawed and outdated. Guess it cost too much but heh what is a few kids being molested.
    PARENTS OF THE NT DESERVE BETTER

  9. A SNIPPET FROM NTG COVER UP MANUAL says:

    Initial Response

    Flat denial
    Convince the media to bury the story
    Preemptively distribute false information
    Claim that the “problem” is minimal
    Claim faulty memory
    Claim the accusations are half-truths
    Claim the critic has no proof
    Attack the critic’s motive
    Attack the critic’s character

    Delay response to allegation
    Ignore

    Deny
    Who? What? When? Never heard of it!

    Reward Cover Up Participants
    Just move them to another department

  10. CON ARTISTS AND CRIMS GET SUPPORT WHILE THE HONEST ATTACKED says:

    Authorities when it comes to confidence artists and criminals “are drawn like moths to a candle flame” yet at the same time they attack the honest. Is it because the authorities themselves are con artists and criminals.
    “It is not in the public interest to have wrong doing stopped.”
    Hylton Hayes on NippaGate

  11. Jarvis is a sham says:

    Maybe Jarvis has to wait for the Nt solicitors to write a reply for him, just like the teacher registration board!!!!
    Its all about nt govt liability and how to head it off. Jarvis is a sham, he has no interest in rocking the boat, just like pellizo he will want a JOB WITH A PAY RISE after he establishes himself in THE GAME OF MATES.

    • AEU is a Sham says:

      “Jarvis when you either give up being AEU President or you lose an election you have a safe place here” DoE . Jarvis is going places in DoE, he will be moved and shaken by the powers in DoE. Dress him in a tuxedo and give him a cigar and he will do their bidding. Lampe, Clisby, Smith, Cranitch, Pelizzo, Brown et al all the same.

    • OOPS says:

      Ok, how long has Jarvis been out of the classroom now and what has he done to meet his currency of practise and professional development requirements?

      • I GOT INVITED TO THE 14th FLOOR - WOW THE PLUMMER ROOM-JARVIS IN AWE says:

        No worries Jarvis that job in HR awaits. A rock the boat clause applies in the leave without pay arrangement that Mr Ryan is on while he is President of the AEU.
        “That autographed picture Vicki gave me is awesome I will put next to that one of Ken”
        Jarvis Ryan on his personal shrine at the AEU
        “Jarvis uses the shrine like an oracle to make decisions”
        Steve P (who also has the same autographed pictures)

        • HONESTY IS FOR SUCKERS says:

          Chairman Mao had a little red book. DoE has the little purple Boundless Possible Book.
          He who cheats and lies will rule the world.
          Honesty is for suckers.
          Fake a FaceBook page and you can reach enlightenment.
          To reach the top you must learn to kiss arse first before you can crawl in there.
          A friend in high places is a friend indeed.
          Kids are there to be used and abused.

        • Cucumber Sandwich While Teachers Are Shafted says:

          Not that far from the truth. The AEU has been in decline for years. This union is no longer relevant. There is no wages growth in any public sector. Give it 10 years and the AEU will be no more. Teachers are walking away from AEU in droves or simply not joining. Why would you? The AEU provides no protection for members and when it does it selects who will be protected.
          And when Jarvis is more concerned whether Vicki serves cream buns or cucumber sandwiches with tea there is a problem. Rye, Honey Soy or Italian Herbs?

  12. ICAC says:

    What is with this revolving door/position between Directors of the NT TRB & the dept of Education? It looks like Marree Garrigan has been moved back to the TRB to steer the ship through troubled waters. Lawler is out of the link and Vicki & Marion cant have the new upstart Uibo demanding accountability and scrutiny of the actions of DoE & TRB employees. Lets see how Uibo stands up to the old girls.
    Maybe Uibo will ask why the TRB let Jeff Parker off the hook after threatening a young child with a cattle prod? She might seek to speak to those disgruntled employees who witnessed this incident?She might also enquire why the NT TRB did not interview the two disgruntled dept of education employees who witnessed Parker frighten that little boy to go home on his own without his family being informed?
    Ms Uibo might like to also enquire if the NT dept of Ed settled this matter quietly with the family of this little boy. If the answer is yes that would mean that not only has Mr Parker been dishonest, but the Deputy Chief Executive Marion Guppy has also been dishonest!

    • When is the next election says:

      No wonder the board voted to keep their findings secret.
      Keep at them Craig Dunlop.
      Voters in the rest of Australia are now demanding behaviour like this from unelected bureaucrats is stopped. It is only a matter of time before Uibo will realise if she wants change she will have to drive it. Lets see what sort of politician she is.

  13. Just checking says:

    Ok while we at it, lets see if Lawler, Baylis, Fisher, Guppy, Uibo, Garrigan, Blanchfield & Hayes have current “Working With Children Checks”.

    • Flush em out! says:

      Hylton Hayes would need a Working With Children Card to enter an NT school too even as a ‘cuntsultant’. Maybe another faceless unaccountable board could grant him an exemption?

      • Flush them down says:

        ‘His schtick is old, tired and predictable’

      • Ke Sherrah Sherrah says:

        Garrigan has a lot of dirty secrets. DoE source mentions ‘Sherrah Affair’. Wrongfully accused teacher, apparently a toxic situation with altercation at airport. Can anyone expand on this?

        • Journo Jim says:

          Hope so! or send to a journo for investigation…..or send to cardfightback email and they help you speak to journos

        • Who wants Uibo to stand up and fight says:

          Well unless uibo makes garrigan and the trb disclose their findings we will have to rely on others disclosing this info, come on people part with the details so uibo can see what she us dealing with

        • Career Move Stage Down says:

          Internet informs us that Sherrah was/is a primary school teacher, sometime before 2008 there was an incident/s and in 2008 Sherrah graduates from CDU with a library qualification and never teaches again. Believed to be a library technician now.

      • HYLTON HAYES DECLARED SACRED SHITE says:

        Eva can gazette Mr Hayes to be a board or a sacred shite.
        “We have to think outside of the square and keep doing the same old things we have always done.” We are the Untouchables.
        Eva Lawler

    • AND LET SLIP THE DOGS OF WAR says:

      You will need their DOB’s for that check. Perhaps that journalist should be checking about the registrations.

  14. Oops says:

    Just checking the register of teachers on the NT TRB website.
    There seems to be no record of a Hylton Hayes as a registered teacher in the Nt!

  15. Icac says:

    Two questions for the NT TRB & the NT DoE or more specifically Ken Davies, Eva Lawler, Maree Garrigan and Mrs Guppy
    1.Did the Nt dept education submit a notification to the Nt TRB in relation to Mr Hayes termination from the dept of Ed?
    2. Did the Nt TRB investigate whether Mr Hayes behaviour breached the standards required of a teacher or if he was in fact a fit and proper person?

  16. OPPS says:

    The following persons hold full teacher registration in the Northern Territory.
    MARION ISOBEL GUPPY 3507
    SUSANNE ELIZABETH FISHER 2502
    EVA DINA LAWLER 2890
    MAREE ELLEN GARRIGAN 2539
    KAREN ANNE BLANCHFIELD 111O
    CATHERINE VICTORIA BAYLIS 6367
    Can anyone explain how these people have managed to retain full teacher registration whilst not currently actually teaching in a classroom?
    Can anyone imagine any of them trying to teach in a remote classroom now?
    To retain teacher registration in the Northern Territory the Nt TRB requires teachers to complete at least 100 points of professional development as well as actually teach students for a minimum of 180 days in a five year period.
    Some of the above have been out of classrooms for many years now, how is it they can claim a currency of practice whilst hardworking teachers actually meet these requirements as well as teach full classrooms.
    Take Eva Lawler as a prime example. Maybe she is claiming her reading to children Facebook photos is evidence of practice. Maybe she claimed her unfinished government course as PD!
    Eva is no longer a teacher she is just another untrustworthy politician.
    Heres a good question. When will the NT TRB recognise that her registration is no longer valid?

    • Complain to the Board says:

      Lodge a complaint with the Board!

      • Accountability says:

        Now that sounds like another angle to follow!
        Lets have the TRB disclose the number of complaints & notifications it receives, as well as the number of hearings it has conducted and the findings it made.
        Then the educational community would be able to put this data under scrutiny.

      No doubt things like that happen from time to time in a lapse from character. I recently read 20 of Henry Gray’s “Gray Matters” articles that appear in Sun Newspapers. Mr Gray is certainly aligned with the Department of Education. Readers should be aware of this when reading his articles. My take is that he uses a subtle drip by drip approach with a bit of home spun wisdom to woo the reader.
      Never let sentiment blur your eyes to reality. I wonder what Mr Gray’s take is on the TRB?

      • A retarded education says:

        Yes unsavoury things do happen from time to time, don’t they Henry, especially in the Northern Territory!
        A quick check of Henry Gray’s blog reveals some interesting commentry.
        I wonder how Henry’s post “Adults set the right example to young people” would have reflected on Jeff Parker’s behaviour towards the young student he threatened with his cattle prod?
        I’m sure that was not behaviour we would want that child to learn from.

    Minister Uibo is only reactive at best. There must be a review of the operations of the TRB done by an external body with no connection to DoE or the TRB or NTG. Such an investigation would call for submissions.
    There must also be a review of the legislation.

I reported to the police officer in charge if Palmerston primary schools regarding serious teacher misconduct back in 2014 and they didn’t want to know about it..they were friends with the teachers and principals and failed to investigate as they I believe were fed lies from selected principal and teachers to dismiss my claims…which could have been prevented from teacher molesting more girls and years later finally being convicted.

      • Jamie says:

        Don’t worry Hannah, my wife and I have already reported those Police officers to ICAC for investigation. Threatening you instead of protecting those kids (your included) is disgraceful and disgusting. Same for all the Department of Education staff who protected their friend at Driver Primary School. Reported them too.

            You could also submit complaints to the NT TRB relating to those individual department of Education employees who covered for this person and did not act according to their responsibilities as registered teachers in the NT.

            • Hannah Curran says:

              Thank you but the nt trb know all about my case and failed to do their own investigation in 2013 when I went to them initially about the other pedo at the same school and same time this convicted pedo was teaching.. maree garigan and Sharon scurr know and all they did was give a pamphlet on practical practises to this relief teacher pedo who told my year 4 daughter class rude strip search story and rude and violent comments and showed my daughter’s year 4 class faces of serial killers on death row using the school internet classroom smartboard when he was alone with the kids..at same time the other pedo teacher now convicted was molesting girls in the next classroom during recess and lunch. So much more in 2013 the trb board decided they would not look into my complaint unless I agree to reveal my name so I agreed otherwise they would refuse to discuss my complaint. Peter Chandler was at that board meeting that night how very convenient he would be there. Trb and education dep are one do not trust them at all even if new faces are there now. Icac maybe though in 2013 I had a private session with royal commission into institutionalised sexual abuse and as my case was happening at time they told me they could not intervene even though i told them the police education dep and trb were not investigating my case properly if at all. In 2015 I posted on wbnt fb a post warning parent all about convicted name suppressed who then was still teaching at that school..I got inundated with nasty comments and threatening messages including someone fake profile threatening two of my witnesses. I called police..3 days later police officer came to my house unanoun ed and handed me defamation act Peter Chandler was police minister at the time..I asked why gave you the order to come and hand me this..do they have egg on their face now threatening me with defamation when I’m speaking out about a teacher with serious misconduct with students who is now not only a convicted one but also had a previous criminal past ..it’s disgusting. Over 10 years he was teaching and he was a criminal the whole time. So so much more info..

    • LAWLER & HAYES UP A TREE, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.....LA LA LA says:

      Gettin so excited about this new ICAC. I see Hylton Hayes and his Government cronies all through this explanation and yes including the ex-Education Minister Eva Lawless.

      Underpinning the intent of the legislation is a desire to prevent or minimise the occurrence of “improper conduct” and to improve public confidence that such conduct will be detected and dealt with. A Commissioner will be appointed who will have very broad powers to investigate, report and, if necessary, facilitate prosecutions.

      Because of the very broad definitions proposed as to what might amount to “improper conduct” the legislation has the potential to impact on anyone whose activities intersect with any arm of Government.

      For instance, if you contract with or use the services of any public body, or even tender for public work, the legislation will apply. If you sit on a board or committee that has or seeks public funding, you need to be aware of what activities the legislation will cover.

      As currently drafted the legislation will also apply to conduct occurring even before the legislation becomes law. In other words past events can be the subject of scrutiny by ICAC.

      What amounts to “improper conduct”? The legislation defines this to include:

      corrupt conduct;
      misconduct;
      unsatisfactory conduct;
      anti-democratic conduct.

      Corrupt Conduct: This can include in the case of public officers, dishonesty, failing to manage conflicts of interest, breach of public trust, illegal acts in the performance of official functions, inappropriate conduct in relation to official information and conduct that effects the honest and effective performance at official functions.

      However, even if you are not a public official you could be guilty of corrupt conduct if you engage in collusive tendering, provide false information, misappropriate public resources, benefit from the dishonest use of public resources or dishonestly obtain employment as a public officer.

      Misconduct: This can involve conduct that would give rise to disciplinary action.

      Unsatisfactory Conduct: Involved illegality, negligence and incompetence.

      Anti-democratic Conduct: This is designed to target conduct surrounding elections at all levels of Government.

      The ICAC will be given very broad powers to investigate. These include the power:

      to require information;
      inspect records;
      to require a person to attend for examination;
      to enter premises and execute search warrants.

      Investigations can be conducted both in private and as part of a public inquiry. There is the ability to be legally represented but generally speaking you must answer all questions even if they tend to incriminate you. Confidentiality and privilege can only be claimed or maintained in very limited circumstances.

      The ICAC must issue guidelines for mandatory reporting of improper conduct and can conduct reviews to determine compliance. It can issue reports as to the outcome of audits and/or the existence or otherwise of systemic issues it has identified as well as reporting on the outcome of investigations.

      These reports can be made to a Minister/Government/Parliament or even made public. It can make public statements and or recommendations as to prosecution or other action.

      There are significant protections in the legislation for Whistleblowers including the ability to award compensation for retaliatory action if taken against a Whistleblower.

      Whilst the concept of an ICAC is new in the NT, they do exist in other jurisdictions. As an example of the nature, extent and breadth of complaints and investigations that may be expected once the ICAC is up and running, in the 2015-16 year the South Australian ICAC received a total of 1063 complaints and reports. By far the vast majority related to complaints relating to state government instrumentalities with local government the next.

      The principle nature of matters investigated related to allegations of abuse of power with theft and misappropriation coming next. These figures have been increasing annually during the short life of the SA ICAC.

      We encourage everyone who has an interest or concern as to what the ICAC may or can do to visit the Government website and review the legislation and avail themselves of the opportunity to raise those concerns with the new Commissioner.

    “and no defined rules for the conduct of investigations”
    The TRB has no defined rules for investigations. The quote came from a book about the Soviet Gulag.

      • Totally Rotten Bureaucracy (TRB) says:

        We will never know.
        Unless this statutory body is forced to introduce transparency to its secret investigations/findings/decisions, this public service organisation will never be seen as a ‘public service’ body.

        For those concerned about the ‘Kalkarindji cattle prod’ incident, the TRB did release a report about its findings. Unfortunately that report was identified as confidental and included warnings about not releasing those findings.

        The problem the general public will have with the investigation into the behaviour of Jeff Parker and his use of a cattle prod to scare a young child to leave the school, is that the NT TRB never interviewed the two dept of education employees who witnessed this incident.

        That leaves one to question why the two integral witnesses were not interviewed?

        One can only assume that the NT govt solicitors and the NT dept of education did not want this scandal to be properly investigated, with the vicarious liability exposed in a thorough open investigation.

        So much for the TRB being a statutory body with the responsibility of ensuring Mr Parker is a fit and proper person to be registered as a teacher in the NT.

        Any fair minded person would consider chasing a young child off school grounds with an electric cattle prod would cause one to question whether this person had a defect in his general character.

        Surely in considering whether there was grounds to determine whether this person had a defect of character, the investigators would have examined whether other evidence of defect of character existed.

        Unfortunately the secrecy involved in the investigation of these matters ensured that if such evidence exists it has not been disclosed.

        In this case there were previous complaints about this person from other organisations and individuals to the NT dept of education.

        Despite the existence of such evidence, the NT dept of education defended Mr Parker and claimed the teacher who reported Parker had made false & defamatory reports about Mr Parker.

        Fair minded voters in the NT would naturally consider this to be a matter the new NT ICAC should investigate.

        • Totally Rotten Bureaucracy says:

          Some other evidence;
          a complaint to PM Abbott’s office,
          a photograph of a child taped to her desk,

          a mandatory complaint relating to the cattle prod incident,
          written complaints to senior staff of the dept of education,
          the ‘HARRIS REPORT’,

          • Totally Rotten Bureaucracy says:

            Go out to Kaljarindji and ask the community about the incident where a teacher hit a student with a rock and you will also discover that Mr Parker had a habit of throwing rocks at the teenage boys when he was angry with them.

    TEACHERS DECIDE TO GIVE NT A MISS AND GO TO QUEENSLAND AND WESTERN AUSTRALIA.
    Figures from a recent survey of teacher destination in Australia found that Queensland and Western Australia were more preferable destinations than the NT. Hugh Proctor stated that long term opportunities in the two states were better than those in the NT. One teacher stated that
    “I love the Torres Strait and I can be in Cairns in a few hours then the world” and another said “I thought about the NT but I read a lot a bad stuff so I went to WA with no regrets”.

  34. REALLY DUMB NT says:

    Having known a few of the officials lambasted here for a number of years I am disappointed in them and their failure to correct the situation.
    The underlying narrative in the NT is one of Aboriginal misery that drives a whole economy so nothing can improve because all the jobs will dry up. The system must stay the way it is.
    The sectors being grog, health, police, education, prisons, centrelink……a whole industry

      The Teacher’s Registration Board should ensure that teachers placed in classrooms in front of children, satisfy in areas of qualification and character. The TRB should never operate on the platform of ‘near enough is good enough’ when it comes to registering teachers. Recent columns in the NT News and Sunday Territorian, suggest that the TRB has a need to much more carefully consider the worthiness of all teachers to teach. These stories and the lack of transparency are somewhat sullying of the reputation of this approving authority. Clearly, the TRB needs to take stock and look to the rebuilding of its image.

      @Henry By “rebuild” I hope you mean ripping it out, including its foundations, scrape the area flat, spray it with Mirex, sow grass and rebuild it somewhere else !!

  43. DoE HAS NO GOOD STORIES says:

    “I am only here to talk about good stories”
    DoE NT
    Are there any?

  44. OLD FARTS PROBLEM WITH NT says:

    Teachers pay fees to the TRB yet have no say in the operation of the Board. I believe that the majority of the Board should be elected by the teachers. Make an end to Old Fart Appointees. Speaking of Old Farts I see Maree is back with the TRB. Nice move Vicki (yeh sure you do not appoint the Director of the TRB), the new Minister has to wear incontinence panties when dealing with the Department. Yeh she is that “shit scared” she might have to teach again one day. Lucky Vicki got that stock in for Jarvis.
    I’m Laughing at you all

  45. TRB IN LEAGUE WITH FAMOUS DoE FLOP PHIL BRENNAN AKA PHIL'S TRB FLOP says:

    Phil Brennan the Internet whiz was on a Committee of the TRB. It seems he the left that Committee after he was caught doing dodgy stuff on Facebook. Phil had a Happy Yess while in the Choir of Man only to go FLOP.
    The TRB sounds like a FLOP.

  46. THE HEAT IS ON ~ OH-WO-HO ~ KANGAROO COURT IN LIMELIGHT says:

    THE TRB of the NT = the FSB of the NT.
    The TRB is essentially a secret court in many matters concerning teachers. The NT News expose reveals one side of this operation where wrong is covered up, on the flip side many innocents are been ruined by the TRB. Imagine receiving a letter from the TRB accusing you of wrong doing that was based on false declarations from a school principal. It happens.

    TRB = KANGAROO COURT

    • Lies, lies and more lies. says:

      Imagine receiving such a letter based on false allegations made by deputy chief executive Marion Guppy of the depatment of education and supported by staff of the human resources directorate!
      Then imagine finding these people hiring high profile lawyers to fight your attempts to have their actions held to account!

  47. TRB DIRTY SECRETS - DIG HERE or MAREE'S DIRTY LAUNDRY says:

    UIbo was on TRB Committee for several years
    TRB has no independence of NT Government
    TRB Board Members manipulated
    TRB must not be following the law if they are secretive
    TRB wants to hide information
    TRB Legal advisors called the “dry cleaners”
    DIG HERE DIRTY LAUNDRY

    • JARVIS RYAN MISSING IN ACTION ON TRB - RISE OF THE DoE MUPPETS says:

      The Teacher Registration Board Members must be puppets. Does the Board just endorse decisions and recommendations made by shadowy others who actually are not part of the Board. In hearings the Board Members are just there for decoration, the whole thing is run by lawyers.
      And where is Jarvis Ryan on this issue, oh that is right Jarvis is waiting for Vicki Baylis to tell him what to do. Jarvis leaned over and Vicki whispered “you are on leave without pay” and Jarvis said “yes master I obey”!
      The AEU just part of the LABOR PARTY that RED TENT MOB – EVA and HYLTON.
      And can we expect Henry Gray to have an article in the Darwin Sun in the near future titled “Teacher Registration Board Sets Standards”. Another DoE muppet?

      • Lies, lies and more lies. says:

        Jarvis Ryan you are a joke and so is your union.
        All you people are interested in is doing the bidding of the labor party.
        You are being led by the nose and allowed to have a little pay rise as long as your members are kept.
        quiet.
        When was the last time you people did something to challange your masters?

  48. NT GOV is the MOST CORRUPT GOV in Australia says:

    *claps hands*

    Cardfightback & local media does it again. Long Live Cardfightback! Long live local investigative media!

    Maree Garrigan, new (AGAIN) Director of NT TRB, is the NT Public Service equivalent of a Russian GRU agent who is sent to various places in order to execute NT Dept of Education dissidents (teachers). She delivers the novichok to your teaching career for her paymasters: Vicki Clueliss and Eva Lawless: A state (Territory) sponsored prostitute-assassin.

    • Lies, lies and more lies. says:

      Just as UK investigators have discovered, following the evidence that is under your nose will uncover the truth.
      The truth exists in the paperwork.
      Checking the attendence of members of the teacher registration board and then requesting minutes of their meetings will uncover what is taking place.
      Ask those teachers who have been fighting to get access to documentation used against them demonstrates a culture of hiding the truth.
      It looks like these board members rubber stamp the advice of TRB employees who are employees of the department of Education.
      Does anyone think these members are going to ask questions or cause ripples?
      The staff of the Teachers Registration Board are either mates with senior staff of the dept of education or they want to impress these people in an effort to be part of THE GAME OF MATES.
      Keep digging people the evidence is under your nose.

      • TRB HAS LEAKS AS SOME MEMBERS PANIC ~ I WAS ONLY FOLLOWING ADVICE says:

        If I was a Board Member I would be nervous because the exemption from liability may not protect them if the Board has been involved dodgy activities. “I was only following advice and never actually used my brain”.
        I WOULD BE VERY WORRIED IF I WAS A MEMBER OF TRB
        AND IT APPEARS THAT THERE ARE LEAKS IN THE BOARD

    • hold them accountable says:

      The TRB website details the last update to the wider community as June of 2015.
      Looks like they have been asleep for the last three years.

    • GAME OF MATES AGAIN says:

      Where has Marie been & where has Susan gone?
      This dIrectors position seems to be a revolving door between the dept of education & the TRB.
